PLANO, Texas, March 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ferguson Braswell Fraser Kubasta PC (FBFK), a full-service business law firm strategically located in North Texas, continues its expansion, with the addition of an intellectual property group led by Kelly J. Kubasta. With more than seventeen years of experience, Kubasta brings a broad-based intellectual property practice, advising clients in strategic development, maintenance and enforcement of patent, trademark, and copyright portfolios. Although he primarily focuses on patent, trademark, and copyright, he also handles issues such as trade dress, trade secret, unfair competition and antitrust.

“Kelly brings a depth of experience and a unique skill set to our firm,” said L. Kyle Ferguson, president and founder of Ferguson Braswell Fraser Kubasta PC. “With an international client base, the practice is growing rapidly, and our clients are seeking advice on an increasing array of intellectual property matters. A recognized leader in the field, Kelly’s ability to combine creativity, legal strategy and business knowledge make him a valuable addition to our team.”

Representing clients from a broad range of industries, Kubasta has litigated cases involving software, consumer goods, apparel, electronics, energy exploration equipment, medical devices, automotive components, and architectural designs. He has substantial experience at the trial and appellate level in Federal and Texas state courts. Moreover, he has resolved many of his clients’ disputes through the strategic use of mediation both before and during litigation. Kubasta takes pride in understanding the business of his clients — the result is an ability to develop both short-term and long-term recommendations for leveraging the clients’ intellectual property assets, all while working within reasonable budget constraints.

“Ferguson Braswell Fraser Kubasta PC has built a strong reputation throughout the North Texas business community and beyond,” said Kubasta. “My intellectual property team and the firm’s existing team of business lawyers strongly complement one another, giving our mutual clients access to a broader range of legal services. Perhaps most important, our integration into the firm further cements our common philosophy that every single client deserves best-of-the-best legal expertise at reasonable rates. I am truly excited to assist our current and future clients in maximizing the value of their intellectual property assets.”

As a registered patent attorney, Kubasta has prepared and prosecuted utility and design patents in various fields including mechanical and electronic devices, industrial equipment, telecommunications, optics, software and business methods. He has also drafted dealer/franchisee agreements, negotiated software development and licensing agreements, constructed Internet e-commerce policies, and resolved domain name disputes through ICANN.

A two-time graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Kelly earned both a J.D. and a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering.
